Future undergraduate students
Dr. Jacqueline Noder recently completed a PhD in mechanical and mechatronics engineering. She previously did a master’s in engineering at Waterloo.
Noder’s research focuses on formability characterization and prediction with through-thickness strain and stress gradients. Her research interests extend to the practical application of sheet metal forming and machining.
A professor at Waterloo Engineering was recently honoured by the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in Germany in front of an audience of almost 2,000 people
Kaan Erkorkmaz, a professor of mechanical and mechatronics engineering, was one of 11 top international researchers recognized as TUM Ambassadors on stage during an annual summer concert.
What some say could be the future of public transportation in Whitby has a top speed of 20 kilometres per hour. For safety reasons, that’s as fast as the new eight-seater driverless vehicle will be travelling when they start transporting their first passengers. The six-kilometer route, which the vehicle will follow, is said to be the longest AV circuit in Canada to date and will be in use within the next few weeks.
Congratulations to Arash Arami for being selected as one of the keynote speakers at the International Congress of Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering (CSME 2021). The CSME 2021 lasts for three days long, starting on June 28th to the 30th.
On March 17, 2021, the Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering community gathered together to celebrate and learn about the innovative research taking place in the department at the 4th annual MME Graduate Research Symposium.
With the largest attendance to date, this event had many other “firsts”. It was the first time the event was held online, the first collaboration and sponsorship from the Conrad School of Entrepreneurship and Business and featured the first ever entrepreneurship award.
This past Wednesday April 7th, at the Norman Esch pitch competition, a pitch competition amongst the entire UWaterloo Engineering faculty, 4 of the 6 ten-thousand dollar prizes were awarded to teams from the MME department (2 Mechanical, 2 Mechatronics). Mechanical engineering team, Bless Your Sole, earned an additional $3,000 as the winner of the Sedra People’s Choice Award.
Take a brief look at each of our winning teams below:
Team AquaSensing, a MME student-run start-up project, have won a $5000 grant, among four winning teams, from the 2021 Winter Concept pitch competition.
Founded by MME master's students, Nathan Johnson, Connor Al-Joundi, Kushant Patel and Jarren Teo, AquaSensing focusses on the design of battery-free water-leak detection devices.
Come join us virtually on Wednesday April 7th and witness 10 finalist 4th-year Capstone teams from various engineering departments battle it out in the Norman Esch Pitch Competition for $60K in prize money to jumpstart their startup project.
Of the 10 finalists selected, 5 of them, an unprecedented majority, are from MME (2 MTE, 3 ME). Each team could take home one of six $10,000 prizes - yes, MME could clean sweep the finals by winning five of the six awards!
AquaSensing, a tech startup started by MME professor Norman Zhou and ECE professor George Shaker, have earned a spot in the finals of an international pitch competition for water innovation.
The duo booked its spot in the global Water Dragons pitch competition after winning second place in the preliminal round against eight other companies.
The MME department is excited to announce the 2021 Interdisciplinary Engineering Capstone Symposium which will be held on Friday, March 26th 2021.
The symposium will be held online this year and our students are eagerly anticipating the opportunity to finally demonstrate the results of their innovation and expertise.
